Another indicator that things in the technology world are recovering is research just released from IDC which finds that the application deployment software market, which includes applications and middleware grew by 4.4% last year to just over $7 Billion.
“IDC believes that in 2004 the overall application deployment platform software market will grow almost 4% from 2003. This forecast is based on interviews with over 1200 IT managers conducted in North America in October/November 2003.”
